the great majority of the largest corpora

federal government, because their account
ability should be co-extenslve with their
held of action But most certainly we
hould not strive to prevent or limit corpor
ate actMty. We should strive to secure
uch effective supervision over It, such
power of regulation over It. as to enable
us to guarantee that Its activity will be
exercised only In ways beneficial to the
public. The unwisdom of any well mean
ing but misguided ertort to check corpor
ate activity has been shown In striking
fashion In recent years by our experience
In the Philippines and In Forto Rico. Our
national legislators very properly deter
mined that the islands should not be ex
ploited by adventurers without regard to
the Interests of the people of the islands
themselves. But unfortunately in ihelr seal
to prevent the Islands from being Improp
erly exploited they took measures of such
severity as to seriously, and In some re
pects vitally, to bumper ei.d ret aid the
development of the Islands. There Is noth
ing that the Islands need mora than to
have their great natural resources de
veloped, and thexe resource can be de
veloped only by the abundant use of capi
tal, which, of course, will not b put into
them unless on terms sufficiently advant
ageous to offer prospects of good remuner
ation. We have made the terms not merely
hard, but often prohibitory, with the result
that American capital goes into foreign
countries, like Mexico, and Is there used
with immense advantage to the country
in lis development, while it can iot go Into
our own possessions or be used to develop
the lands under our own flag. The chief
sufferers by ttiis state of things are the
people of the Islands themselves.

what ought to be the patent fact that It

wealth themselves, but In our Interest, in

that if they shrw exceptional business

our Industrial fabric are interwoven in
such complex fashion that what strength

a considerable part of the penalty. If
we make conditions such that the men of,
exceptional ability are able to secure
marked benefits by the exercise of that
ability, then we shall ourselves benefit

The conscience of our people has been
deeply shocked by the revelations made of
recent years as to the way in which some
of the great fortunes have been obtain -d

of the people at large a strong feeling that
a serious effort must be made to put a l.p

believe that something, and I hope that a

It Is hard to rach astute men of this type
save by making them feel the weight of on
honest public Indignation. But this Indig
nation, if It Is to be effective, must be In
telligent. It Is. of course1, to the great
advantage of dlshnnrst men of wealth If
they are denounced, not for being dishonest,
but for being wealthy, and If they are de
nounced In terms so overstrained and hys
terics) as to invite a reaction In their favor.
We cannot afford In this country to draw
the distinction as between rich man anl
poor man. The distinction upon which we
must Insist la the vital, deep-lying, un
changeable distinction between tne honest
man and the dishonest man, between the
man who acts decently and fairly by his
neighbor and with a quick sense of his
obligations, and the man who acknowledges
no Internal law save that of his own will
and appetite. Above all we should treat
with a peculiarly contemptuous ahhorrenr
the man who In a spirit of sheer cynicism
debauches either our business life or our
political life. There sre men who use the
phrase "practical polities' as merely a
euphemism for dirty politics, and It Is such
men who have brought the word poli
tician" into discredit. There are other men
who use the noxious phritse "business Is
business." as an excuse and jutiflcatlon for
every kind of mean and crooked work; an l
thesa men make honest Americans hang
their heads because of some of the thlnas
! they do. It Is the duty of every honest
I patriot to rebuke In emphatic fashion alike
"w politician wno aoes not understand that
the only kind of 'practical polities'" which
a nation can with safety tolerate Is that
kind which we know as clean politics, and
that we are as severe in our condemnation

most contemptuous abhorrence, are the
men who have achieved great wealth, or
any other form of success. In any save a
clean and straightforward manner.
Cotton Still Ulnar la Spots,
Bo much for the general subject of In
dustrialism. Now, Just a word In reference
to one of the great staples of this country,
which Is peculiarly a staple of the southern
states. Of course I mean cotton. I am
glad to see diversifications of Industry" in
the south, the growth of manufactures as
well as the growth of agriculture, tnd the
growing growth of diversification of crops
in agriculture. Nevertheless It will always
be truo that In certain of the southern
states cotton will be the basis ct the
wealth, the mainstay of prosperity 'n the
future as in the past. The cottoii crop is
of enormous consequence to the entire
country. It was the cotton crop of the
south that brought 4uQ,0ij0.0M of foreign
gold Into the L'nlted States last year,
turning the balance of trade in our favor.
The soil and climate of the south nre such
that she enjoys a practical monopoly In the
production of raw cotton. No other cloth
ing material can be accepted as a substi
tute for cotton. I welcome the action of
the planters In forming a cotton 8toela
tlon. and every assistance shall be given
them that can be given them bv the na
tional government. Moreover, we must
not forget that the work of the manu
facturers In the south supplem-nts the
work of the planter. It is an advanto
to manufacture the raw material here and
sell to the world the finished good. Under
proper methods of distribution It may well
he doubted whether there can Iw such a
thing as overproduction of cotton. Last
year's crop was nearly 14,0"0,ono bales, and
yet the price was sufficiently hieh to give
a handsome profit to the planter. The
consumption of, cotton Increases eaeh year
and new uses are found for it.
This leads me to a matter of our foreign
relations, which directly concerns the cot
ton planter. At present our market for
cotton Is largely In China. The boycott of
our goods in China during the past year
was especially Injurious to the cotton man
ufacturers. This government Is doing, and
will continue to do, all It can to put a slop
to the boycott. Hut there is one measure
to be taken toward this end In which I
shall need the assistance of the congress.
Justice to riitneae.
We must Insist firmly on our rights, and
China must beware of persisting In a course
of conduct to which we cannot honorably
submit. But we In our turn must recognize
our duties exactly as we Insist upon our
rights. We cannot go Into the interna
tional court of equity unless we go In with
clean hands. We cannot expect China to do
us Justice unless we do China iustlc. Th
chief cause in bringing about the Ivuimii I
of our goods in China was undoubtedly our i

remains that in the past we have come
short of our duty toward the people of
China. It Is our clear duly. In the interest
of our own wage-workers, to forbid all
Chinese of the coolie class that Is, laborers,
skilled or unskilled from coming here. The
greatest of all duties Is national self-preservation,
and the most important step in na
tional self-preservation is to preserve in
every way the well-being cf me wage
worker. I am convinced that the well-being
of our wage-workers demands the exclu
sion of the Chinese coolies, and It Is there
fore our duty to exclude them. Just as It
would be thw duty of China to exclud
American laboring men If they became in
anv way a menace to China by enterlne.
Into Its country. The right la reciprocal,
a In our last treaty with China it was
e .eltly recognized as Inhering In both na
tions. But wo should not only operate the
law with as little harshness as possible,
but we should show every courtesy and
consideration and every encouragement to
all Chinese who are not of the laboring
class to come to this country. Every Chi
nese traveler or st:dent, business man or
professional man, should be given the same
right of entry to, and the same courteous
treatment In. this country as are aceordod
to the student or traveler, the business
man or professional man of any other na
tion. Our laws and treaties should be so
framed as to guarantee to all Chinamen,
save of the excepted coolie class, the same
right of entry to this country and the same
treatment while here as is guaranteed to
citizens of any other nation. Bv executive
action I am as rapidly as possible putting
a stop to the abuses which have grown up
during many years liv-rhe administration of
this law. I can do a good deal, and will do
a good deal, even without the action of the
congress; but I cannot do all that should
be done unless such action is taken, and
that action I most earnestly hope will be
taken. It Is needed in our own Interest and
especially In the Interest of the Pacific slope
and of the South Atlantic and gulf states;
for It is short-sighted indeed for us to per
mit foreign competitors to drive us from
the great 'markets of China. Moreover,
the action I ask Is demanded by considera
tions that nre higher than mere interest,
for I ask it in the name of what Is Just and
right. America should takt the lead In es
tabilshlng International relations on the
same basis of honest and upright dealing
which we regard as essential as betwetn
man and man.

Is Visibly Affected When Vlsttlaa
Old Horn mt His Mother.
flOBWELL, Oa Oct. .-Presldent
Koosevelt today carried out his long cher
ished plan of visiting the home of his
mother Roswell. Ga. One of his reasons
for coming south was that he might see
the old homestead where his mother spent
her girlhood and which she left a happy
bride. That the visit waa fraught with
many tender recollections was evldrnt as
his carriage (trove away from the old Bul
loch mansion, where hla mother lived and
married, the president murmured to Mrs.
Roosevelt: "I can hardly bear to leave
The president reached Roswell at 7:86
this morning and was joined here by Sen
ator and Mrs. Clay, who were his guest
at breakfast. He then entered a carriage
and was driven to the mansion. This fine
old homestead Is now the property of 3.
D. Wing, a lumber merchant of this sec
tion, who lives In It with his sister, Mrs.
Wood, the postmaster of Roswell.
Meets Old Servants.
Here he was greeted oy two old servants
who lived on the place during hla mother's
young womanhood. One of these Is "Aunt
Grace," who acted as maid to Miss Martha
Bulloch, who afterward became Mrs. Theo
dore Roosevelt, and the other Is William
Jackson, who decorated the mansion on
the occasion of the marriage of Its younn
mistress. The president was deeply touohed
as he shook the hands ef these old servi
tors. In company with Mrs. Roosevelt he
then Inspected the house, calling to th
attention of the company many Incidents
connected with his mother's childhood. Be
fore leaving th mansion he posed with
Mrs. Roosevelt for a picture, which In
cluded "Aunt Grace" and "Daddy Wil
From the homestead the president was
driven to thb town park, where a stand
had been erected, from which he delivered
an address. He was welcomed to Roswell
by Charles M. Reed, a student of Mercer
university, who in the course of a well
chosen address said the only reason he
oould see for ths selection of himself to
deliver this welcome was because of the
president's well known fondness for having
young men identified with public affairs.
Senator A. S. Clay Introduced the president,
who was enthusiastically greeted as he ros
Address by President.
In his address the president said:
Tou can have no Idea of bow much it
means to me to come back to Roswell, to
the home of my mother and my mother's
people, and to see the spot which I already
know so well from what my mother and
aunts told me. It has been exactly a If
I were revisiting some old place of my
rhlldhood. It has meant very much to me
to be Introduced by Senator Clay. 8enator
Clay has been altogether too kind In what
he said about me. Now I am going to say
nothing whatever but tee bare facts about
flenator Clay and those facts amount to
this: If the average man I had to deal
with In pbllc life possessed Senator Clay's
firm devotion to what he deems right my
task wov.ld be so easy that It would not bo
worth mentioning. I have gone to Senator
uiay rcr aavice ana counsel and help, and
evor since I have been In Washington, Just
as I went to Senator Cockrell of Missouri
while he was In the senate, with the cer
tainty that ail I had to do was to convince
that what I wanted done was right I could
not always convince him but if I did con
vince him that was the end of it he went
It has ben my very great good fortune
to have the right to claim that my blood Is
half southern and half northern, and I
would deny the right of any man here to
feel a greater pride In the deeds of every
southerner than I feel. Of the children,
the brythera and sisters of my mother who
were born and brought up in that house on
the hill there, my two uncles afterward en
tered the confederate service and served in
the confederate army. One, the younger
man, served on the Alabama as the young
est officer aboard her.
He was captain of one of its broadside 32
pounders In its flnal fight and when at the
very end the Alabama was sinking and the
Kearsarge passed under its stern and came
up along the side that had not been engaged
hitherto, my uncle, Irving Bulloch, shllud
his gun from one side to the other and fired
the two last shots fired from the Alabama.
James Dun woody Bulloch was an admiral
In the confederate service. Of all the peo.
pie whom I have ever met he was the one
that came nearest to tha't beautiful creation
of Thackeray "Colonel Newoomb." Wen
and women, don't you think that I haw the
ancestral right to claim a proud kinship
with those who showed their devotion to
duty, whether they wore the gray or
whether they wore the blue? All Americans
are worthy who feel an equal pride in the
valor of those who fought on one side cr
the other, provided only that each did with
all his might and soul and mind his duty
as it was given him to aee his duty.
Meets Family Friends.
Th president next was driven to the old
Presbyterian church. In which his grand
father, James Bulloch, was once a leading
member. Mr. Bulloch dropped dead in this
church while teaching a Sunday school
class in 1849, and among those present in
the church today were three members of
that class who were present at the time.
The venerable pastor of the church. Rev.
Drv W. E. Baker, offered prayer and the
president and Mr. Roosevelt then shook
hands with a number of the townspeople,
many of whom had known th president's
The reception of the president at the old

as the son of one of their neighbors. Many

The discovery of the money In the Black
Rock home tonight was brought about by
keeping a close watch on one of CunlifTe'
chance acquaintances, George Etsenman.
who was with CunlifTe when he was ar
rested yesterday morning. According to
Eisenman's story he met CunlifTe in a cheap
hotel Wednesday night, the two being to
gether for some time. Cunliffe had a pack-
uge wljh him and as the men were about to
leave each other CunlifTe aald he wanted
Elsenman to take the package, as It was
laundry that he wanted to keep In a safe
place. Elsenman took the bundle to his sis

opened It and found the big eum of money.
Captain Arnold of the detective bureau
Who knows Eisenman, and who saw hlr (
with Cunliffe when the latter was taken,
went to the home of Eisenman's sister and
found the bundle of shirts, but no money,
and he suspected that Elsenman had ab
stracted a part of Cunllffe's plunder. Elsen
man was shadowed all today, and he was
seen to give a small package to his friend,
the butler. Tonight Elsenman was taken
to the Black Rock house and asked the
butler for the package. He went to his
trunk and turned It oyer to Captain Arnold
Intact. Th butler had not been told what
was In th package. Captain Arnold would
not reveal the name of the butler or the
family which employed him. Elsenman
was taken to police headquarters, but ws
Attempts to Bribe Captain.
Two other new features of the chapter
of events In connection with the capture
of Cunliffe cropped out tonight, one being
an attempt by Cunliffe to bribe Captain
George Arnold of the local detective force
and the other being the story of betrayal
by a friend of Cunliffe for the purpose
of securing the reward of $2,500 offered by
the Pinkertons for his arrest. During one
of the talks which Captain Arnold had
with Cunliffe last night the prisoner made
a proposition to divide the $80,000 which he
had sent to his brother-in-law, Joseph W.
Board man, In Bristol, on the promise of
sewrecy. Arnold was to have received
$tO,0W If the scheme was carried out ac
cording to the plan of the prisoner, who
was to tell the Pittsburg authorities that
the hiding place of the money would never
be known. i
Arnold led the prtsoner on In his wild
proposition, and after Cunllffe's plan wei'e
laid bare the detective told Cunliffe that
the money he had Intended to spilt up had
already been found In Bristol.
Betrayed by a Friend.
Th betrayal of Cunliffe by hla friend,
James Missett, Is interesting. M Inset t for
merly lived in Bristol and knew Cunliffe
well. They had been together a good deal
when Cunliffe lived In Bristol and Hart
ford, and at the present time Missett Is
employed by on of the cheap hotel in
the aection of th city In which Cunliffe
was captured. Last Tuesday Missett went
in the Tremont hotel barroom and saw
Cunliffe standing at the bar. Missett went
up to him and said: "Hello, Cunliffe; what
are you doing here?"
Cunliffe turned around and pretended not
to know Missett, who waa sure of his man.
Missett then said: "Why, you know me,
I'm Missett Tou used to play policy with
me in Bristol' Cunliffe still denied that
he had ever seen Missett. Missett then
left the barroom In a hurry and when out
side Inquired the amount of the reward
offered for th capture of Cunliffe. The
nxt morning Missett went to New Tork
and on reaching there visited th pinker
ton agency In Broadway.
"Gentlemen," he said, "I know wher
Cunliffe Is and I want to know what re
ward is offered for him."
He was told $2 M0

that Missett was a crank, but he assured

the Pinkertons would give him a written
agreement that he would get the reward
If he told them where the missing man
could be found he would do so. This was
agreed to and Missett told them. The ar
rest of Cunliffe followed.
Tonight Missett returned from New York
with the $$.600 reward and proceeded to
spend it lavishly throughout the lower part
of the city.
E. O. Cunliffe, the Adams Express em
ploye who disappeared from Pittsburg, Pa.,
with $101,000 and was arrested here yester
day, started back to Pittsburg with the
detectives today. He seemed more low
spirited today than when first captured.
He explained this by saying that he had
hoped to arrange for lenient treatment
after reaching Pittsburg by trading on his
secret as to the whereabouts of the stolen
money, but the fact that the detectives re
covered $SO,000 of the money In Bristol,
Conn., last evening removed the prisoner's
hopes in this respect.

STORM ON THE LAKES

usual. The east shore of Lake Michigan,
however, suffered severely. Dock property
was swept away at St. Joseph, South
Haven, Holland, Grand Haven and Muske
gon. The total damage done -Is estimated
at $50,000. The Pere Marquette bridge which
spans the St. Joseph river near Its mouth Is
n danger tonight of being swept away by
he heavy swells, but it Is believed that it
will be saved Inasmuch as the Wind on
southern Lake Michigan has abated and
the seas are rapidly going down. Much
summer resort property along the cast
shore of Lake Michigan has been badly
The storm did not work as much dam
age on Lake Superior as on the lower lakes,
but two accidents having been reported up
to midnight. These occurred at Grand
Marals, Mich., where the steamer Barth,
towing the schooners Nlrvsna and Galatea,
endeavored to make the port for shelter.
The entrance Is narrow and difficult to
make In heavy weather. Both schooners
missed the entrance and drifted westward
In the lake. The Nirvana went down half
a mile from shore and Its crew of seven
was rescued by the life saving -crew. The
Galatea went ashore, but Is resting on
sand and will probably weather the storm.
Its crew of seven men was also taken off.
Rrle'a Shores Strewn with Wrecks.
CLEVELAND. Oct. JO. -As a result of the
wildest storm that has swept Lake Erie in
years wrecks ha,e strewn the shore the
entire distance from Buffalo to Detroit.
The storm came with suddenness at
an early hour Friday morning and con
tinued without Interruption throughout the
day. At midnight tonight the wind's veloc
ity, which reached fifty-four miles an hour
at Its highest point today, had decreased
little In force and fears were felt that the
reports of numerous wrecks received dur
ing the .day did not entirely cover the ex
tent of the damage wrought.
The storm swept the lake from one end to
the other and eery vessel that was ex
posed suffered to s more or less extent. The
known losses, as enumerated tonight, In
clude the following:
Freighter Sarah K. Sheldon, beached and
wrecked near Lorain.
Steamer Wisconsin, on rocks off Ixiraln.
Hchoouer Kingfisher, beaten to pieces off
Steamer F. A. Prince, damaged near
Tug Walter Metoalf, sunk off Breakwater
Several barges sunk off Buffalo harbor.
Steamer Prinkel reached Buffalo badly
Barge Yukon, sunk off Ashtabula harbor;
Two of th crew of tb Sheldon were lost
off Lorain. The wreck of this vessel was
th most serious of any reported thus far
and th story of Its experience waa thril
ling in every way. The Sheldon left Cleve
land with a cargo of coal Thursday night
and was bound up ths lsk. Its trouble
began In getting out of th harbor, and
from then on until it was beached at Lorain
it was almost continuously at the mercy of
th tempest. After running ashore it was
buffeted and pounded for over seven hours
by th wind and waves. Two tugs from
Cleveland, one of which bore the life sav
ing crew of this port, succeeded In rescuing
all but two of the crew. These two at
tempted to escape In a small lifeboat and
they were quickly swept out to sea and
lost. Th drowned men were John Fox,
wheelman, and Charles Evans, second mat.
The vessel Is a complete wreck.
The big steamer Wisconsin was also a
victim of the storm off Lorain. It left
Lorain for Toledo at I SO a. m.. and was
struck by the gale which held Its head
upon the rocks outside the breakwatsr.
It probably can be released without great
damage when th sea die down.
Th big passenger steamer City of Erie,
from Buffalo, arrived two hours late and,
being heavily listed, had great difficulty In
entering the harbor here. The boat's of
ficers report that th gale encountered all
the way from Buffalo was terrific. The
Erie did not leave on its return trip to
night, word having been received from
Buffalo that the City of Buffalo, r'ster
hip of the Erie, waa tied up at that port
on account of being unable to unload
freight because of the storm.

ing seventy-two miles sn hour st Its great
est vekclty, swept over Buffalo and west
ern New York, from early this morning
until late tonight. Much property was
destroyed and at least one person was
killed. Lake Erie, lashed Into a fury by
the tremendous blow, played havoc with
The gale first made Itself felt at 4 a. m.,
when fifty-four miles an hour was regis
tered at the weather bureau. It dropped
to forty miles at a, m., and reached Its
greatest velocity at 2:30 this afternoon,
when seventy-two miles an hour was
recorded. The weather bureau predicted
a hard blow all night and Issued a warn
ing to marine men to keep Inside the break
water. The regular passages of the Cleve
land and Detroit boats for tonight were
cancelled. The passenger steamer. Western
States, due here from Detroit at t a. m.,
waa sighted off port about noon, but tho
captain evidently feared to attempt the
narrow passage between the rock-ribbed
breakwaters and turned his boat toward
th Canadian shore to ride out the gale
behind Long Point. The big propeller, H.
I. Wilkinson, the last vessel to make port
tonight, reported the Western States about
nine miles from Long Point and making
fair headway In the teeth of the gale.
The steamer carries about fifty passengers.
The schooner Mautenee, light, bound from
Buffalo to Duluth, foundered off Ripley,
twenty miles west of Dunkirk, at 4:30 this
afternoon. Captain Morgan and the crew
were saved. The Mautenee probably will
go to pieces during the night.
Dunkirk fishermen report that an un-,
known barge la In distress off Van Buren
point, ten miles west of Dunkirk, but the
story cannot be confirmed.
Captain Ohman and Seaman Gus Tar
sons of the barge Unadilla were swept over
board with a deckload of lumber. They
clung to the floating timbers until rescued.
Half a dosen yachts snchored off the Buf
falo Yacht club's headquarters were blown
ashore at the foot of Porter avenue.
On shor the damage consisted principally
of demolished wreckage, plat glass win
dows, chimneys toppled over and uprooted
trees. Mrs. Catherine Yeager, 64 years old,
was crushed to death beneath a brick wall
blown down by the wind. Stephen Frank
ofrlck, 12 years old, was also caught under
ths wall. Both of his arms wer broken.
